Things I Made Today

I tried three new things today and actually liked each one of them. So let me share those things with you. My daughter is hosting a Jewelry Party and she is using a Pink and Yellow color theme. She is also using pink and yellow food. So I volunteered to make "mini-cupcakes" and Lemon Cooler Cookies for her......both were new adventures. The mini cupcakes are great and just the perfect bite size. I think they will be easier for folks to handle and easier to eat and they are just so cute! Also, I made the cookies from a recipe I found online. She is using those for a "take home" goodie bag. It all will be fun. And last but not least, I have been wanting to make hooded towels for gifts but knew I needed to wait until I had more time and boy did it take me some time to figure these out. I used 2 tutorials and ended up with the better of the two. They require a bath towel and a hand towel. My sweet Grayson loves cars and always carries one with him everywhere he goes so I used a car applique on the hood. It is from GG Embroidery Designs. Her designs are always digitized so well and I know they are a good quality. So for my first time I am pleased. However, I think they are addictive.....I can't wait to make more and more. Next time add ribbon or rickrack or whatever. Tomorrow I am going to Lake Charles to deliver cupcakes, cookies and hooded towel but I am also going to take a sewing class. I can embroider but not really sew an article of clothing so this should be interesting. I will let you know if I can do it!


  1. Thanks for everything! The party would not be the same without your help! And I love Gray's hooded towel. I know he will, too!

  2. Cute, Cute! As always! Need to chat with you...I'll call you Thursday since tomorrow you will be in Lake Charles. I love your blog and Coleen's too.
